The young hero and the horrible giant (day 23)
David and Goliath, from 1 Samuel 17, is retold on page 122 of the Jesus Storybook Bible. After reading the story we built "Goliath" out of empty cardboard boxes. Whoever was "David" would say "you come against me with sword and spear... but I come against you in the name of the LORD Almighty," (from 1 Samuel 17:45.) Then David would throw a ball and try to knock over the Goliath tower (rocks would be better to use but it was raining outside.) Alyse asked "how could just a little rock kill him?" This was a great way to talk about how big the miracle was.
the point? "...and God always wins his battles!" (page 125)
